Facts and research on hurricanes! -Emily Owen
What is a hurricane?
The first thing we'll discuss is the naming and categorizing of hurricanes. Hurricanes are named boy, girl, boy, girl. For example, a hurricane could come along and be named "Drew" for a boy, but the next one that came along could be named "Hollis". However, male names weren't included until 1979. Hurricanes are categorized by their wind speeds. A storm turns into a hurricane when it reaches wind speeds of 75 mph. A category 5 hurricane has wind speeds up to 155 mph.
Well, that's all I have on hurricanes. I hope I gave you some information on how truly dangerous hurricanes can be. That's all I have for now.
